    Re: Thursday Pathfinder OoC- Thread

    We've cleared the museum and are slated to escort some elf back to elf-land, by way of a smuggling vessel.

    Before that, however, it's the traditional end-of-quest shopping spree and preparations, with a sack of 2000 gold to be divided among the party. And there are so many things to buy, preparations to make, and questions to ask and answer.

    http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetview.php?sheetid=864122

    Alrighty.

    Question time, in a format that won't be lost among myriad other IRC words.

    What do I have to roll to check what I know about envoy Elf-man? That'd be nobility knowledge?

    Similarly, I'm in the merchant...y group, thing. Can't pronounce it, but it's the Q one. So to find out what stuff I can buy cheap here, slap on a cart, bring along on the smuggling ship ride to elf-land, and sell at a profit.... uh, would that be Appraise? Because I guess I can also see it being geographical knowledge or knowing about nobles, to determine things they want?

    Re: Thursday Pathfinder OoC- Thread

    What do you know about the elf? It was an ask and get it answered from the Venture Captain.

    Who is Sephriel? “He is a representative of the isolationist Mordant Spire elves who have stood guard over the ruins of ancient Azlant for millennia. His safe arrival at the Mordant Spire is of paramount importance, and your primary mission.”

    As for the merchant thing... The answer is no, this is not an opened world economy, every merchant will magically know how much an item costs and charge you 100% for it, and buy it from you at 50%. These scenarios are laid out in a way that there should not be any influx of extra gold aside from what was laid out in the scenario.

    Re: Thursday Pathfinder OoC- Thread

    I understand that you're reluctant to easily offer the potential of extra gold, but I'm going to link a few things now that I'm not reeling from my first real introduction to tabletop gaming 'economics'.

    http://www.d20pfsrd.com/equipment---final/goods-and-services/ue-more-gear-4

    Relevant section is Trade Goods, and I'll just snip the most important line.

    >>Trade goods are the exception to the rule that you can sell an item for half its price; they're valuable enough to be exchanged almost as if they were cash itself.

    That's just a general 1 to 1 exchange of currency to barter currency, though. There's also supply and demand, which is easily utilized from here:

    https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B0y-45598HWsUldyN3JWOTc4aTA/edit?pli=1

    On page 39, accounting for how the prices of trade goods change depending on if they're flooding the market or nowhere to be found.

    But yeah, I'm not talking about trying to buy a hundred breastplates for a discount and sell them for more than market price or anything. I can easily accept 'Adventurer shit runs on different, and bullshit, rules', I just want to drag a wagon of Stuff around places, buying and selling exotic spices and sundries.

    And it's less bringing more money in than it is pushing adventurer funds out of the system, really. I'm spending money on trade-stuff, that can convert into money but in general converts to more trading stuff. I mean, I'm a wizard. If money is the huge issue, then the second I get something like lesser planar binding I can just keep indefinitely summoning earth elementals to bring me diamonds and produce infinite money.

    Also, not unrelated, and not immediately relevant either, but interesting:

    Isn't this something which the Day Job rules (Guide to Pathfinder Society Organised Play p21) are supposed to cover?

    Shit, I forgot to post this and just realized as I was lying down.

    I'm thinking my shopping list:

    ---

    2PP: Wand of Magic Missile.

    Haramaki: 3GP
    Scrolls-
    Protection from Good: 25GP
    Protection from Evil: 25GP
    True Strike: 25GP
    Sleep: 25GP
    Deck of Cards: 7GP?(Detailed artwork item, shark skin &etc.)

    Total: 110GP

    For now, nothing else jumps out at me that I can afford.

    Track down someone landside to cast resurrect, ask our dead-guy what happened?

    Murder everyone then say it was a conspiracy?

    Just agree to blame someone and when they say they're innocent just point out that proclaiming your innocence is exactly what a guilty person would do!

    Okay.

    I'll be buying a Pearl of Power(1) for 1000 gold.
    Since I'm suddenly food paranoid, I'm also buying 10 trail rations for 5 gold.

    Total spent of 1005 gold.

    And after a lot of deliberation, I think I'm going to stick with focusing on the best defense being a strong offense and buy a 2pp Wand of Burning Hands. Hitting the Weak Point for Bonus Damage is always nice.

    Looking through my equipment I've already got most of the basics in my Pathfinder's Kit (which includes, amongst other things, a week of trail rations). I'm also wanting to keep her in her light load so I need to be careful.

    [table]
    [tr][td]Winter Blanket[/td][td] [/td][td]5 sp[/td][td] 3lbs[/td][/tr]
    [tr][td]Cold-weather outfit[/td][td] [/td][td]8 gp[/td][td] 7lbs[/td][/tr]
    [tr][td]Climber's Kit[/td][td] [/td][td]80 gp[/td][td] 5lbs[/td][/tr]
    [tr][td]Small Tent[/td][td] [/td][td]10 gp[/td][td] 20 lbs[/td][/tr]
    [tr][td]Masterwork glaive[/td][td] [/td][td]310 gp[/td][td] 8 lbs[/td][/tr]
    [tr][td]Total[/td][td] [/td][td]408.5 gp[/td][td] +43 lbs[/td][/tr]
    [/table]

    In addition there was the 10 gp "transfer fee" for Killik (the Besmarian medic) from the end of the last scenario and I'd be selling/getting rid of the old glaive she had (which effectively factors out the weight of the new glaive). Would also buying a potion of Endure Elements and two of Cure Light Wounds be okay (an extra 150 gp for those items in total)?

    Given how valuable, and expensive, they would be then I would be fine not taking any of the cash if this happened.

    I've no problems with this distribution. I'd prefer if the gold distribution were in integer increments, though - it makes bookkeeping a lot easier.
